Dear Global Members,
We have amazing news and we are so excited to share it with you today! The Spring of 2019 will definitely go down in history as a landmark season and a watershed moment for Global Network of Christian Ministries (GNCM) and the Destiny Church and Minister’s Network!
It’s always been the desire of GNCM to provide as many opportunities as possible for its members. But year-by-year, through each subsequent administration, this desire has been frustrated by the fact that GNCM does not have the fulltime staff or the funding system to help to make this dream become a reality. In the Fall of 2018 Global Chairman, Pastor Mark Briggs, felt led of the Lord to approached Destiny Director, Dr. Phil Brassfield, and suggest the consolidation of Global with Destiny as a possible option. Dr. Brassfield asked to pray about the idea and after careful thought and prayer returned and without reservation agreed that God was in the move. The proposal was then presented to the Global board of directors and then to Destiny’s Board. After many hours of prayer, consultation and a careful legal review by Counsel for each organization working independent of each other, the path was cleared and the respective boards approved the proposal and subsequent plans for consolidation. And here we are today on the brink of a new season for a new combined network of Christian Leaders with a Kingdom assignment! Global Network is consolidating into Destiny Ministries!
We believe that working together as Destiny, we can better serve the needs of ministers, churches and Christian Leaders who desperately need fellowship, pastoral care and ministry support. By coming together Global brings an expanded footprint to Destiny with a presence in numerous foreign countries and members in over 39 states. Destiny, on the other hand, already has the fulltime staff and support systems in place and for over almost 20 years has been a globally recognized leader in the area of minister’s, ministry and church development. In June Destiny will host its 20th Conference that has grown in attendance with each passing year. They offer a wide range of opportunities and programs designed to help ministers and churches maximize their potential, like coaching, educational programs, missions opportunities and trips, along with educational and fellowship travel events. They have group exempt status with the IRS so that churches that wish to do so can operate under their group exemption. Moreover, Global and Destiny have consistently worked very closely over the last nearly twenty years. In fact, Destiny Director, Dr. Phil Brassfield served on the Global Board and Counsel of Elders for over ten years and has deep existing relationships inside of the Global Network.
All of this gives support to the idea that the time has come to be one.
